Ready, Fire, Aim

From San Francisco:
According to KCBS and Bay City News Service, two bystanders were hit by gunfire after an officer-involved shooting in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood early this morning.

According to police, at 2:06 a.m., officers located a wanted person in the 400 block of Broadway. The suspect ran away from police and produced a weapon, they said.

Officers then fired at the suspect, who was not hit. However, two bystanders were hit by the gunfire. They were taken to a hospital to be treated for their injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening, according to police.

The suspect, who was not wounded, was taken into custody. The suspect’s weapon was recovered, police said.

Police did not have information available about how many officers were involved in the shooting or how many rounds were fired.
But, thank God, one of the officers involved was a blind homosexual and the other was a one armed black transgender female. While innocent by standers were certainly in jeopardy, the City's diversity in the work force policy remained safe and intact.

Priorities such as diversity must come first and foremost Sig, safety takes a backseat right?

Besides, the bystanders would be committing a hate crime if they were to sue the officers for their injuries.

If we lived there, we could be "safe" citizens too. Ain't PC police forces great.

Gorges - quite unintentionally of course.

Chris - it they don't die, the bystanders will be charged with unlawfully impersonating a ballistic backstop.

WoFat - To err is human, to err twice like that is really screwed up.

Odie - Nothing like a good PC department to help you rest easy at night.

Thank God they weren't good looking white dudes.

Well, if anyone is wondering.. I've heard local police on the radio here in Cincinnati testify that out of 8 illiterate candidates for the police force they were forced to hire two. Rinse Repeat.
